Phil played a G&L L2000e for those Frost and Berkeley dates and for much of 1982. (Maybe for some of 1981, too, after he abandoned the Doug Irwin bass.)

good information...I know that by 1981 or so 6 string basses had started to become more viable instruments...apparently Lesh had tried one that weighed over 50 pounds at some point (not on stage)before he settled into the Modulus...
